LAKELAND (FOX 13) -

In the midst of a four-city swing across Florida on Saturday former Governor Jeb Bush brought enthusiasm and excitement to the campaign trail.  

In Lakeland a tightly packed crowd gathered to hear the 59-year-old Republican's thoughts on the Presidential race.

"This president is offering more of the same," Bush said. "It will define us as a nation if [we] allow his re-election to take place and he has his way."

Thought Tuesday's election will likely be decided by the results tallied in a few key swing states, Governor Bush is confident Mitt Romney will come out on top.

Recent polls show him holding a slight lead over President Barack Obama in the Sunshine State.

"There's so many polls that it gets confusing," Bush explained. "But here's the simple fact. The fact is all the polls show the intensity on the Republican side [and] all the polls show Mitt Romney winning the independent vote."

And even when asked about his political future, Bush managed to keep the focus on Romney.

"My plans are to work with a whole lot of enthusiasm for the re-election of Mitt Romney in 2016," he added.

Two of the former Massachusetts Governor's kids also pumped up supporters on Saturday. They spent their time in the political spotlight touting their father's successes and his plans should he win Tuesday.

"Our hope is just people see who my dad is why he's doing this," said Josh Romney. "The fact that he understands the economy and he understands what it's going to take to turn it around."

Like the Bush, Romney's sons are also confident but admit the process has not been easy on the family.

"We've done it before. We know what its like," Josh Romney said addressing the Lakeland crowd. "We knew going into it that there was going to be a billion dollars spent against my dad."
